CHARITY The Open Door Centre has started a fundraising challenge to raise money for a dishwasher which will improve its day to day activities.

The centre, based in Ferndale Road, Gorse Hill, supports adults with learning difficulties.

It wants to buy a £750 industry-standard dishwasher and are welcoming public donations.

Pat Winning, deputy manager, said: “We do meals for 40 people every day and run a public cafe on Fridays and have lots of washing up to do so it would make our life easier. Also following our last inspection we were advised to get a dishwasher otherwise our hygiene rating of five would fall to three and we don’t want that to be the case.”

Anyone who would like to make a donation can visit mydonate.bt.com /events/wishfordosh. To find out more about the Open Door Centre, which marks its 30th anniversary next year, call 01793 512357 or visit www.theopendoorcentre.co.uk

I wish The Open Door Centre well with their fundraising and an industrial dishwasher will undoubtedly save time but for anyone to suggest that properly hand washed dishes are not as hygienic as those done in a dishwasher is frankly "Rubbish".
